CHCS - Center for Health Care Strategies

Improving the quality and cost-effectiveness of publicly financed health care

CHIPRA Quality Demonstration Webinars

CHCS is the primary technical assistance provider and coordinating entity for three states awarded a CHIPRA Quality Demonstration grant by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The states will implement or expand use of a Care Management Entity (CME) model to coordinate services and supports for children and youth with serious behavioral health challenges and their families. This technical assistance series is supporting states in design and implementation of the model. The rebroadcasts below can be instructive to other states interested in developing a CME.

These webinars were developed under grant CFDA 93.767 from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. However, these contents do not necessarily represent the policy of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and you should not assume endorsement by the Federal Government.
